Arcade Fire – My body is a cage

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

Fan made video which the band have now stuck on their own website. If you haven’t seen Once Upon A Time in the West, this will spoil the whole movie for you. You were warned:

The B-Team – Doo dee doo da da daaa

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

In 1976 a crack soldier of destiny unit bought a house, no no, rented a house and did it up with their own money, no no, someone elses, I mean resting in my account…

Once Were Warriors

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

A staggering film for the violence, the drama and the amazing acting. An alternative glance at life in New Zealand. Here’s one scene. There are many like it. Jake the Mus is a guy you root for one minute and you hate him for his violence towards others the next minute:

Remixing politics by JD Lasica.

A case for getting regulators to blog.

So banner ads do work. Handy. Means maybe that Google ads that are not clicked on will still be effective and won’t cost you anything.

Lesbians everywhere will find this of interest:

This guy is lucky. He wins a car, re-enacts how he won to a local TV crew and then… watch and see:

Heeeeere’s Johnny Hitler .. er Brady .. er

Monday, May 21st, 2007

It was bound to happen and it has. Someone has posted a video reply to the earlier clip I posted and they seem to have synched it too with the speech. Some cruel people out there.

Update: Via Votetube – Holy fucking shit! The original Brady video but with different Audio as done by DublinNorth. to live blog and podcast from count centres

Monday, May 21st, 2007 are recruiting for helpers on count day. Using people in count centres can phone into a special number and their voicemail is turned into a live podcast-like message for the world to hear. In addition they will have people live-blogging from the count centres and lastly they will also have a textline in operation where people anywhere can text in gossip/drama/rumours and it will all be uploaded onto their site. Politics mixed with tech. *drool*

If you want to help out give them an email on IrishElection < AT > and include your name, constituency you are in and your mobile number.

Special Adviser to John Bruton now special adviser to Mr. Tayto

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Anyone else notice that the guy in charge of the Mr. Tayto election campaign is listed as Roy Dooney? Is this the same Roy Dooney that is listed here.

From 1994 to 2001 Roy was special adviser to the Leader of Fine Gael and Taoiseach, John Bruton TD. His knowledge of the workings of government is unsurpassed.

Roy was a political training consultant in Albania from March to June 2001 with the Washington based National Democratic Institute.

Too easy to make comparison jokes between Bruton and Tayto, isn’t it?

Dublin North medley – We built this city.

Blogorrah delete comments which pointed out they thought Olywn Enright was a bloke. They fix the post and delete the comment. Tut tut.

Via John Breslin BarCamp Belfast -You going?

Krishna mentions a handy new networking group for new startups in Dublin called Link.

Via Lar, Penguins, penguins, penguins!

Rock the Vote is not the golden haired boy. They’re even spamming Twenty. John dislikes them too. Least their sugar-daddy loves them. Long time.

Thinking of you.

Colbert as Colbert and out of character. (Mostly)

Hugh Macleod Business Cards – Every asshole should have one

Sunday, May 20th, 2007

I’ve been bitten by the Macleod bug and have shelled out for a few business cards from Streetcards.

Side A:
Damien Mulley Business Card

Side B:
Damien Mulley Business Card

The reaction has been interesting, some people laugh out loud and pocket the card. Some laugh out loud, pocket the card and then you can see them saying “What a fucking wanker” to themselves. The 3rd kind look at the card and tell me it is not funny and business people should take business seriously yadda yadda yadda. The 4th kind laugh at the card and then tell me I’m an asshole. I can work with these people the best.

Still, whoever I give the card to, there’s always a reaction, unlike when I get cards from most people where it’s a mechanical movement from one wallet to the other without any brain cells being stimulated. That’s the good thing about Hugh’s work, it always fires up those neurons, be it cards, suits or wine.

At least it’s not like the scene from American Psycho:

Edit: Howdy Hughsters!
